Tamar and Trina Braxton ("Braxton Family Values"), Anthony Anderson ("Law & Order"), Sherri Shepherd ("The View"), Robert Forster ("Jackie Brown") and Kim Coles ("Living Single") will guest star on the first season of TV Land's new series "The Soul Man," starring Cedric "The Entertainer" and Niecy Nash, premiering Wednesday, June 20 at 10pm ET/PT on TV Land.

Anthony Anderson has been tapped to appear this season as Sweet Brown, Boyce's (Cedric) old music-writing partneR. Brown visits St. Louis to help Boyce get over his writer's block for an upcoming sermon, but ends up pulling Boyce back into his old R&B star habits.

Shepherd will guest star as Sherie, Lolli's (Nash) cousin who is always up to no good. Trina and Tamar Braxton will play Rose and Catherine Pinkney, sisters who audition for the church choir only to find out that they are both dating Stamps (Wesley Johnathan), Boyce's handsome younger brother.

Kim Coles makes an appearance as Wanda, a church-going woman who stops by Lolli's salon hoping to get a special shampoo that all the ladies are raving about. Finally, Robert Forster will guest star as Father Ignatius, the head of a St. Louis clergy organization that seems to closely resemble the mob.

"The Soul Man" revolves around R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce "The Voice" Ballentine, who was living the high life in Las Vegas at the top of the music charts when he decided to go from soul singer to soul saver. Relocating to St. Louis with his wife, Lolli, and daughter, Lyric (Jazz Raycole), to preach in his father's church, his family isn't exactly eager to give up the fabulous superstar life for a humble one. The sitcom also stars John Beasley ("Everwood") as Boyce's father, and Wesley Johnathan ("What I Like About You") as his brother. "The Soul Man" is a spin-off of TV Land's hit sitcom "Hot in Cleveland."

Cedric "The Entertainer" and SuzAnne Martin ("Hot in Cleveland") will serve as executive producers for "The Soul Man," along with Eric Rhone. Emmy(R) Award-winner Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions are also executive producers for "The Soul Man." Keith Cox and Larry W. Jones will be executive producers for TV Land. Phoef Sutton ("Cheers") is the showrunner and Stan Lathan ("The StEve Harvey Show") serves as the director. The series is filmed in front of a live studio audience.
